There is no clear distinction between the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Each of these aspects of us needs attention in order to obtain a higher state of wellbeing.
I call my work “enlightened body” because the body is how we access and experience the world, and enlightenment is about letting go of everything that is not true.
As we let go, our bodies, and therefore our experience of life, becomes brighter and clearer.
I have literally been compelled by my life experience to find this higher awareness in my own bodymind. I’m committed to helping you find it, too.
A Little History
I haven’t always been a healer, doctor, acupuncturist, bodyworker … or whatever the best word is for what I do.
I’ve spent many years in and out of offices, working as a producer, designer, and manager for interactive products. I understand how exhausting office work is. I know the energy drain that occurs for even the most interesting and worthwhile projects.
And maybe like you, I felt a yearning for something more.
My yearning led me to the study of consciousness. I wanted to answer the big questions; why are we here, what is this life all about, how do we work?
I’ve studied the mind maps from western psychology to Jewish Mysticism to Buddhism. At every turn, it became clear that the answers were to be found through the human body.
The human experience.
When I confronted my own health challenges that conventional medicine could not provide satisfactory or useful treatment for, I found energy medicine.
After one treatment from an energy healer, I suddenly felt “right” again. I set out that day to learn how to do what he did.
I studied Polarity Therapy energy medicine at a local massage school and became a bodyworker. I continued to study privately and became a teacher.
Through my studies, I discovered acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine. In Chinese medicine, I found a Great Ancestor of energy theory and practice. I discovered a deep record of diagnostics and treatment that has withstood the test of time.
Chinese medical theory, like Jewish Mysticism, Polarity Therapy, and other descriptions of life as energy, sees the body as a microcosm of the universe.
I was hooked.
Welcome to My Practice
My work goes beyond acupuncture.
My goal is to help you and your body understand new ways of being that relieve pain, regulate physiological function, and create more space for you to be who you want to be in this world.
I look forward to our work together.
